Iron Maiden are still capable of writing new material. Ofcourse they'll never quite reach the quality of the 80's material


Everytime I hear this argument I play "A Matter Of Life and Death" and it brings me back to Planet Earth.

Some good songs on there. Especial1y the 2 long ones.

I like A Matter of Life and Death, probably their best since the 80's along with Brave New World, but still isn't quite on par.

Well they will probably never make legendary albums like they did in the 80s but still after Bruce got back in 1999 they haven't made a shit album..

I love some songs on Dance Of Death, but it is an incredibly patchy album. The Final Frontier is probably the weakest Maiden album with Bruce. More than half of that album is dull as dishwater.

The only one I really dislike is The Final Frontier but thats is an opinion that im not sure its gonna stick. I used to think exactly the same when A Matter of Life came out and now it grew to become one of my favourites from them. Even Dance of Death with all its folk-ish songs, it still has some really good songs (The Rainmaker, Gates of Tomorrow, Journeyman) .

I haven't heard every song off every one (of the Bruce albums, I mean), but I agree with that to an extent. I would go as far as to say there are maybe 2 complete minutes of fulfilling/interesting music on it. Not that there was any reason to expect greatness by 2010 in Iron Maiden's career but that album was very lackluster.

I think Fear of the Dark is the only worse album with Bruce involved, which is why I said "to an extent" above.

I wouldn't go that far, but less than half of the album is appealing to me. "Fear Of The Dark" is a very patchy album, but I prefer it over TFF. There's more songs I like on FOTD than I do on TFF.

I can sort of see why people like Fear of the Dark. Of both of those albums the title track is the only song I could honestly say I like enough to listen to a few times every now and then. My main problem with FotD is it has some moments that go past "meh" and into "it would be embarrassing if I got caught listening to this" bad level

I'm assuming you mean Fear Of The Dark's title track, and not The Final Frontier's? hehe

I like Hysteria by Def Leppard, and I'm not embarrassed to say that I like it, so I definitely wouldn't be embarrassed to be caught listening to anything from FOTD. There are some songs on there which are certainly "iffy" though, let's just say that.

Yeah I probably should have been clearer on that, Fear of the Dark's title track is the one I like. I can honestly say I haven't listened to any song from the Final Frontier in years and really don't remember any details from it.

The first concert I ever went to was Iron Maiden actually, and they played Fear of the Dark (amidst mostly a crappy setlist, which I didn't care about cause I was seeing IRON MAIDEN ) and I remember enjoying it. But they also played Hallowed Be Thy Name which put into perspective how good it actually was.

I had to wait for a very long time for Iron Maiden to get to Australia thanks to low Aussie dollar (how times have changed) and virtually no interest in metal in Australia in mid-late 1990s and early 2000s.


Well, at least you got to see them eventually. They are one of those bands that I think a huge majority of metalheads can enjoy live. They just bring it. Even their crappy material can be made to sound okay when they do it live.

One of three best concerts I've seen - other 2 were Metallica and a symphony orchestra in Vienna.


I still need to see Metallica, badly. They are coming to Montreal this summer but I have a feeling I won't get to make it out. I also have a feeling they won't be coming near too many more times though, so I'm really gonna try.

I've seen every other big band I wanted to, Slayer (original line-up and all), Megadeth, Anthrax and Iron Maiden. Just no Metallica yet.

Mind you, that is sort of a "first world problem", I am very thankful to have gotten to see all those bands

I love Iron Maiden, they were one of the first metal bands I got into. While living in Brasilia they came to play a concert, and my dad interviewed Adrian Smith for his visa. They offered us tickets to the show, but my dad had to decline. I've now got their albums Brave New World and The Number of the Beast, and plan on getting Seventh Son.
